Workshops and Tutorials

All workshop and tutorial proposals must be submitted via the PCS submission system, no later than 5 October 2020 (23:59 AoE). The proposals submitted will be subjected to a review process. Organizers who plan on inviting speakers to their workshop or tutorial are encouraged (but not required) to invite a diverse set of speakers.

Proposals will be reviewed by the workshop and tutorial chairs (plus other experts in case needed). Proposals expecting high contribution to the HRI community and large attendance are welcomed. Due to a limited capacity of the venue, the chairs could ask workshop/tutorial organizers to merge their proposals.
